For example, Shifty Henry was not actually a criminal but a well-known musician in LA. Then Sad Sack was a nickname that was used in the U.S Army in WWII for a person who is considered a loser. It’s also the title of a very popular comic book and strip character.

Lastly, The Purple Gang was in fact, a real mob.

LeAnn singing Jailhouse Rock

LeAnn Rimes hosted an event called Country Showdown, where she also performed the legendary rock and roll song, Jailhouse Rock.

Country Showdown is a talent competition much like the Nashville Star, and to kick off the show, the talented lady sang Jailhouse Rock. While singing, you would even see the original music video of Elvis singing the song in 1957.
